Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM Lens Review

Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM

The Canon EF 200mm f/2.8L II USM is a telephoto prime lens designed for Canon Full Frame and APS-C bodies featuring a fast f/2.8 aperture in a reasonably small and in inexpensive package. I have not formally reviewed this lens yet, but the lens is generally highly regarded by it’s owners.

From Canon USA’s website

Telephoto lens boasting high image quality and carrying ease. With two UD-glass elements and rear focusing to correct aberrations, image delineation is extremely sharp. Background blur is also natural-looking, as was simulated by Canon. The lens comes with a dedicated, detachable hood.

What I Like

  • Price

What I Don’t Like

  • Not image stabilized
  • Tripod mount sold separately
